DPW EMPLOYEE NAMED YOUNG ENGINEER OF THE YEAR

Press Release

Baltimore City Department of Public Works (DPW) Director Rudolph S. Chow, P.E. has announced that Nathaniel Krause, an Engineer II in DPW’s Office of Compliance and Laboratories, has been named 2017 Young Engineer of the Year by the Engineering Society of Baltimore (ESB).

ESB’s Young Engineer of the Year award is in essence the top young engineer of the year award for the greater Baltimore area. In order to receive this award, an engineer must have first received the young engineer of the year award from an associate engineering society or professional engineering organization in Baltimore.  Each professional organization submits the names of their young engineer awardees to compete for the ESB Young Engineer of the Year. 

Krause received the Young Civil Engineer of the Year award from the Maryland Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) in 2016. Both awards recognize young civil engineers for excellence and significant engineering contributions.

Krause, a valued DPW employee of nearly 5 years, will receive the award at the Engineers Club of Baltimore on April 13, 2017 at 6:00 p.m. Krause is a member of the ASCE and is the current chair of the Chesapeake Bay Environmental Water Resources Institute (EWRI).

In addition to Mr. Krause, other projects and DPW employees recently garnering recognition include the City’s Municipal Trash Can Program. The program was named as 2017 Top Project of the Year by the American Public Works Association (APWA) Mid-Atlantic Chapter, for environmental projects in the $5 million to $25 million range. Also from the APWA Mid-Atlantic Chapter, DPW workers Alfonso Jenkins and Greg Schmidt received the Public Works Hero award for life-saving efforts they performed on a co-worker. Two other employees, Phillip Chery, a Program Compliance Officer and Baltimore Environmental Police Officer Silas Phillips received honorable mentions. These employees will be honored by APWA Mid-Atlantic at a ceremony in May.
